Pioneer Tech Certified Healthy Business

Ponca City Now - April 5, 2016 11:13 am

Pioneer Tech met all requirements and has received the Award of Excellence and became, for the third consecutive year, an Oklahoma Certified Healthy Business.

The Certified Healthy Oklahoma Business Program began in 2003 as a way to recognize businesses that were working to improve employee health.

Healthy businesses contribute to creating a healthier Oklahoma. Businesses that have become certified know that creating a healthier workplace is important to productivity, morale, and employee health.

Since the program started, more than 1,000 Oklahoma businesses have become certified.

In 2010, House Bill 2774 created the Certified Healthy Schools and Communities Act. These are two new voluntary certification programs recognizing communities and schools that promote wellness, encourage the adoption of healthy behaviors and establish safe and supportive environments.

All certification programs have three award levels: basic, merit and excellence. Each certification program follows strict criteria.
